Afrovibes Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary! The festival takes place in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Rotterdam. It presents work by contemporary makers and artists from the (East) African continent and the African diaspora in Europe and the Netherlands. This year, Afrovibes offers a program full of theatre, dance, music and spoken word around the theme of Liquid Traces.
Festival theme 2023: Liquid Traces
The Netherlands marks 2023 as a commemorative year for the end of slavery by the Netherlands. From here, Afrovibes shapes the theme of Liquid Traces, with the oceans as the main protagonists.
The water of the oceans holds memories and traces of colonial travels but is also a connecting force between cultures and continents. In the program, water is used in a poetic way to understand the complexity of life in a post-colonial world.
With Liquid Traces, Afrovibes offers an artistic answer to the memory of our (colonial) past, cultural and political debates about identity and decolonization and the attempts to come to terms with our past.
Afrovibes brings big names of African theatre makers and emerging talent with the potential to become the big names of tomorrow. It is a festival not to be missed.
